Meet my Seramas! As I have more Seramas, I’ll add them to this page.
To me, Seramas are little fairy chickens, so what better way to name them than after fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters?
But I don’t name them haphazardly. I have to get to know a Serama before I decide what to name them. I like the name to match the bird’s plumage and/or personality.
Below are my Seramas by name, with with an explanation of why each one received a particular name.
Phillip got his name when I was naming a group of young Seramas after characters from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. Since he was the only boy in the bunch, naturally he needed to be named after the primary male character in that movie.
Fauna is named after one of the good fairies in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. Her color goes perfect with that name.
Flora is named after one of the good fairies in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. “Flora” means “flower”, and her color makes her look like a flower garden.
You know who the character is, but the reason Peter earned that name is because he likes to FLYYYYY!!! I have to be careful when I take him out to handle him, because if he gets loose he goes flying all over the place.
Once when he was a chick with newly sprouted wings, I got a good laugh watching him trying to fly back and forth in the brooder box with great abandon and joy! If he had been a human boy, he would have been laughing with glee!
Aurora is named after the main character in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. She’s so pretty and white with a necklace around her neck, it just suits her.
Because he has feathered legs (hard to see in this pic). I call him Boots because Puss would sound strange.
Merry is named after one of the good fairies in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. She’s such a sweetheart.
No doubt you know Bashful is one of the dwarfs in Disney’s Snow White. Bashful is the perfect name for this one because he’s shy and quiet.
From the famous nursery rhyme (you know, Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet), she just looks like a Muffet to me.
Everyone knows who Little Bo Peep is. The name just fits her.
From Donkey in the Shrek movies, and wow, is it the perfect name for him.
He’s short, adorably obnoxious, very talkative (he won’t shut up once he starts!), and he thinks he’s big stuff!
Sleeping Beauty’s alternate name in the Disney movie. Rose looks like a flower with that pretty frizzled plumage.
Here’s a nice up-and-coming trio. I’ll take individual pics after I’ve named them.
